You use style inside of the HTML file (never in the external CSS file). You place this "attribute" inside of the <tag> you want to style. This is used for what is called "in-line CSS" and it is implemented like this:It's mostly useful during development but you should remove it wherever possible from finished products and style elements in the external CSS using ID's and classes instead.Code:<div style="background-color:yellow;color:red;">...</div>
Link is a <tag> of its own, just like div, ul, li, and so on. It is used in the HTML to link other items to the current document and requires two other items in your list, so I will wait until then to post the example code. Most often, link <tags> are used to associate an external CSS file to style the elements of the current page.
Ok, this is an "attribute" used for link <tags> and it tells the browser what the relationship is of the linked item to the current HTML document. Most commonly you will see this for external CSS files. The combined link and rel code usually looks like this:A good place to find answers and examples of these and other issues is at http://www.w3schools.comCode:<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://www.xxxxxxxxx.com" />

It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS:
